The potential of European observations satellite data to support the sustainable development goals
My research is critically analysing and optimising the potential of applying European observation satellite-derived data to support sustainable development goal (SDG) indicators and influence decision making, especially for those indicators covering the social and economic dimensions of sustainable development as monitoring quality education (SDG 4), inequalities (SDG 10) and corruption (SDG16).

Geopolymer-based stabilisers as an alternative to traditional stabilisers for flexible pavement construction
My research is exploring geopolymer-based stabilisers as an alternative to traditional stabilisers for flexible pavement construction for sub-Saharan developing countries. This work will reduce the cost and support the use of flexible pavement ensuring that roads are more able to withstand heavy and more frequent traffic flows, especially for major roadways and highways
Physicochemical characterisation of graphene based 2D materials for industrial applications
Graphene is the strongest known material. However, it wasn’t until 2004 when the isolation of graphene uncovered a new area of research into 2D materials. Graphene research is now looking to transition into industry. For successful commercialisation of graphene, this project aims to improve understanding of the properties of modified graphene for specific applications, and how those modifications will affect the final product.
